The allusion seems to be of possible eternity, or not-eternity. I have a feeling these are from a poem of one kind or another?

Let me take a shot at these...

1.) I myself am somewhat lost on this one

2.) Clouds symbolize dreams, and sky symbolizes life. There are dreams in my life? Possibly?

3.) Something that is next to never, will never happen. Because it is right besides (next) never
Thanks Akki for your reply .......Anyone has more information about the meaning of the sentences ?
Hello Anon

1. If I could fall into the sky, do u think time would pass me by.

Consider the possibility that the writer of the lyric was simply stringing images together, without strict regard for meaning.

2. There are clouds in the sky.
Think of this non-metaphorically. If someone said to you, "there are clouds in the sky", what would you think?

3- Next to never.

Think of this metaphorically. Imagine a series, which includes these words:

Always.................Sometimes.............Regularly.................Seldom...............Never

What word or phrase might occur before "Never"?

Thanks dude .....very innovative way of explaining the meaning Emotion: smile
You're welcome!
The first sentence is from the song Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton. It's the chorus or refrain part of the song.

I believe it's asking that if everything were turned around or backwards could you change what happened in the past. It's pretty much imagery as was said before so, it's more for effect then real meaning.

The other sentences have been pretty well defined so I won't repeat what everyone else said.
